Getting yourself out into nature can be just what you need when you are looking for a great, relaxing, revitalizing adventure. Knowing where to go, however, can be harder.
There’s so many places around the US that finding somewhere that gives you a diversity of explorable locations, ease of access, and sits well with your wallet can be quite a challenge.
Fortunately, you’re reading the Adventure Guide, so you’ve got an extra bit of help in finding locations that work perfect for you. Today, let’s start with Idaho, and all the incredible adventure spots you can enjoy in the gem state.
Caribou-Targhee National Forest
Caribou-Targhee National Forest is located in Idaho, as well as a bit of Wyoming. Exploring this vast region can afford amazing animal encounters, an incredible diversity of plant life, and even unbelievable, natural rock and mountainous formations.
When looking to explore a location like this, you’ll want a place nearby that you can spend the night comfortably without fear of weather or wildlife. For that, I’d suggest Teton Valley Resort in Victor Idaho. This resort offers cabins, tent sites, RV hookups, even glamping units.
The forest is broken into several separate sections and extends over 2.63 million acres, so be prepared to discover the sweeping forest of your dreams.
Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone National Park is around 3500 square miles of vast wilderness, with recreation areas situated on top of a volcanic hotspot that affords colorful landscapes unlike any other place on earth.
While this location is mostly in Wyoming, the park spreads into parts of Idaho, as well as Montana, too. From sweeping mountain shelves, to deep winding forests, to hot springs and geysers, you’re sure to find something worth writing home about in majestic Yellowstone Park.
It’s also home to many different kinds of animal species, including wolves, bears, elk, bison, and even antelope.
Harriman State Park
This massive, beautiful wildlife reserve features hiking trails, comfortable camping sites, horseback riding, skiing, fishing & scenic vistas. If you’re looking for a place to enjoy in any season, Harriman State Park is the site for you.
A number of people who stay at Teton Valley Resort make the journey to Harriman State Park every year, taking the long, winding paths through the lush foliage and experiencing the wide, sweeping landscape beside the flowing waters of Henry’s Fork River.
Bring a good pair of hiking boots for this one, because you’ll be tempted to spend the whole day exploring the beauties this area provides.
Not every adventure needs to be taken with your feet. Some can be taken with your tongue. That’s where amazing cuisine like Spoons Bistro makes the Idaho adventure list.
Offering a gambit of fine dining experiences, from wines to rich, succulent steak burgers, Spoons Bistro draws travelers in by the divine aroma alone. That, and it’s located in the beautiful town of Victor Idaho.
If you stay at Teton Valley Resort, you’re nestled right near this little gem of a restaurant, as well as dozens of other incredibly noteworthy restaurants that offer any sort of dining experience you could possibly desire. Making Victor Idaho a stop on your adventure trail through the state of Idaho is a must.
Teton Valley Resort
Situated just outside of Victor Idaho, this resort location offers comfort and relaxation right next to thousands of incredible adventure spots, from the expected like hiking and skiing, to the tantalizing—like white water rafting.
For those adventurers who like to take the road less traveled, there are even some unusual experiences to enjoy, like hot air balloon rides. When you’re exploring the Idaho area, you’re going to need a solid basecamp to return to every night after the ventures are through and your feet are sore.
That means you’ll want a place that not only gives you room to lay your head, but offers the finest, most comfortable resting spot for the world weary adventurer.
Taking your adventurous spirit out on the journey it’s been looking for doesn’t’ have to be hard. Get your pack ready, and schedule your stay at Teton Valley Resort.
